Boy George finally addresses claim he slept with Prince

2016-05-26
After causing headline controversy around the world last October, Boy George has admitted that he didn't once sleep with Prince, who passed away last month (April). Boy George was a guest on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday (May 25) and was quizzed on the rumours, which came to light during a conversation with fellow coach Paloma Faith on The Voice UK. When asked by Wendy about the shocking statement, the 54-year-old was quick to dismiss the story, saying he was 'joking' when he made the remarks. “Of course that’s not true. It was a joke.” Boy George explained to Wendy, explaining that he only made the joke to try and persuade a contestant to join his team. He went on to jokingly admit that he did sleep with a poster of Prince under him, however. “I’m a massive Prince fan. I met him once in Italy and he was suitably eccentric. He was exactly what you’d expect him to be. He was Prince!" he continued.
